You miss the point.

When it is said one cannot legislate morality, the reference is to victimless crimes where the legislation is directed at outlawing sin and vice.
That means gambling, drug use, prostitution, smoking, scratching in public, sodomy, etc. It does not refer to laws protecting individual rights to life, and property from crimes like murder, rape, torture, robbery, assault, battery, trespass, fraud and so forth.
China has lots of laws. And labor camps.
Though cats and dogs are cute and cuddly, they are not humans. They are animals. Cow skin is made into leather belts and used to cover furniture. Cows, goats, sheep, when killed according to kosher rules, are drained of their blood while alive. Lobsters are boiled alive. What makes dogs and cats so special?
If you want so save other people's property from a painful death, it would be best for you to purchase it from them beforehand rather than tell them what they may or may not do with it, and use the coercive power of the state to enforce your values upon others.
